. if barack obama really want us to feel better he should demrever better government. host: thanks caller. guest: the caller is from connecticut and i went to the coast guard academy in connecticut and they had some money in the sandy supplemental to rebuild some of the buildings there. so i do understand. i -- certainly -- one he said how speaker boehner held up the bill. i think he held up the bill because of the challenges in his own conference and the fact they just voted for the fiscal cliff bill and a minority bill of the conference voted for the fiscal cliff and the last thing he wants to do is pass another $60 million bill and one that won't pass with a majority. that said, i think he is right we can't i ford business as usual. he also mentioned all the of the people trying to request this. unfortunately, a lost this started out in the administration's request and the president's request. also, we were one of the first to be publishing databases of all the earmarks and all the spending bills so it is certainly something that transparency and accountability are critical issues and
. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, kyla. >>> 8:15. the next nomination president obama is expected to make is white house receive of staff lack lieu to replace geithner. in if he's confirmed lieu's first priority would be to work with congress to raise the debt ceiling and the president would need to find a new chief of staff. >>> a federal court has approved additional severence pay for dozens of former military servers who are gay and lesbians who were discharged under the don't ask, don't tell law. this covers 180 veterans who received only half their separation pay. don't ask/don't tell was repealed last fall. >>> it will be late march before the u.s. supreme court hears arguments on two same-sex marriage cases. arguments on proposition 8 which bans gay marriage, will be heard on march 26th. the court will hear the challenge to the federal defense of marriage act the next day. doma makes it so salt lake city marriages are not recognized -- so same-sex marriages are not recognized under any laws and allows states to ignore same- sex marriages performed in other state
on the floor show today. >> thank you. cheryl: all right. president obama announcing today jack lew as his nominee for treasury secretary. rich edson is standing by at the white house with the latest including the slew of comments about lou, if you will. rich? >> reporter: that's right, plenty of that already, cheryl. it is up to the united states senate whether or not to confirm jack lew. the white house is selling this as a transition. that, by the way, is construction for the or parade here, the inaugural parade, if you heard the loud crash. the transition that you have now from really a rescue job that treasury secretary geithner was asked to do at the beginning of the administration now to one of budgeting. jack lew, the budget chief in the clinton administration, in the obama administration in the white house is basically saying that's why they chose him, the mastery of the federal budget. >> jack knows that every number on a page, every dollar we budget, every decision we make has to be an expression of who we wish to be as a nation. our values. the values that say everybody gets a
: that is incredible. >> not a lot more you can squeeze out of that. >> martin thank you. >> thank you. neil: individual good. >> why critics say that obama administrationa new immigration push is all about getting more voters. i look up to a lot of the older heads, you know, the innovators, the heads of the art movements of the past. they kept it really edgy, and, like, a lot of the latin american muralists d the latin american artists, their styles are very unique and new to their time, you know, somewhat controversial, but that's who i look up to mainly. personally, i'm very excited about going to college. it's something new, and it's something different than what i'm used to. i'm definitely going to be a little out of my element, but that's what makes it so exciting is that, you know, it's something fresh. well, there's so many opportunities that i think i could miss out on if i didn't go, you know. getting into college takes planning and vision. you know, it's just like when i take a brick wall and turn it into a canvas for my art. painting's helped me realize i've got what it takes. ne
doocy, thank you so much. >> there's a whole lot of reaction continuing to president obama's nomination of chuck hagel for secretary of defense. >> krauthammer says he thinks it give as preview of the second term and vision for the defense department. >>> i think what is happening in the second term obama is going to show who he really is. remember when he said to the soviet president after the election i will be more flexible which means he can be more of who he wants to be. number one item is cut down defense, the defense department. leon panetta said the cuts were supposed to go into effect on january the 1st and have now been delayed for a month. if they went into effect he gave i wanted indications he might resign on principal because he cannot carry it out. when hagel was asked he said the defense department is bloated and needs to be paired down. he is prepared to do the dismantling obama wanted to do never admitted he wanted to do but would be carried out in a second term. >> when discussing iran he said describing hagel as being soft is an under statement. what's going on with
and irresponsible not to pay bills that are due. >> jamie: thanks, molly. >> gregg: president obama signing that $9.7 billion super storm sandy aid bill into law. it increases the federal emergency management agency's borrowing. fema had warned it would run out of funds if congress didn't step in to help soon. a larger and more comprehensive aid package still in the air. john boehner voting to on it next week. >> jamie: a rare public appearance of assad addressing torn nation. for first time in six months. leland vitter has more. >> this speech is a combination of the same old, same old, all the rebels are terrorists. we're going to continue to fight and win this war, but it also provided a little bit of diplomatic cover not only for the syrians but also for their allies so the russians can now say, look, assad offered a peace plan and rebels won't talk. they would call it optics and they are important here. assad trying to get control live on state tv. a reminder that a large number of syrians support him especially among the upper class. despite offers for negotiation he was clear he has no inten
ago, president obama officially nominated jack lew as secretary of the treasury. for now, that nomination is official. >> yet another official change then in his cabinet potentially. thank you very much. >>> changes in the south bay as well. but this is one a lot of folks look forward to. the silicon valley international auto show. >> bob redell is there. good thing they didn't give him the keys. >> reporter: i can't believe i got stuck in the passenger's seat but i think there's a good reason why i'm not behind the wheel of this car. you're about to feel why. there you go. we are in good hands. steve lorten, a professional driver, trying to give us an idea of the capabilities of this jeep grand cherokee. what can she do? >> we're at 30 degrees right here. let's do it. >> reporter: if i had a breakfast sandwich, i might have been able to add to the weight and tip it over. you take people through different disciplines as you call it just to show what a four-wheel drive can do. i guess they're surprised by what? >> almost everything. like this one, for instance. this is our
conditions by wednesday. our latest forecast. erica? >> dylan, thanks. >>> president obama is headed back to hawaiian vacation today. and given the fights he's about to face in washington, he may be wishing he could stay a little bit longer. our white house correspondent, kristin welker, is traveling with the president. she's in honolulu this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, erica. well, the president and congress may have resolved the fight over the fiscal cliff, but there are three more budget battles looming, and analysts say that could sideline part of president obama's second term agenda which he will begin to map out soon after he leaves hawaii. president obama soaking up the final hours of vacation before he and congress engage in their next fiscal fight. at the top of the list, the debt ceiling which is like the nation's credit card, and it's about to max out. emboldened by his recent tax hike victory, president obama drew a hard line in his weekly address. >> as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress shoul
country. >> john: please stay here, and we'll welcome joe williams, sam seder, thank you, gentlemen, great to have you. let me put it out to you. what do you think sam and joe do you think the g.o.p. option opposition to hagel the same as against obama he's soft on iran? >> it's partly that. there is also maybe perhaps some resentment towards hagel for being a little bit of a natural genuine maverick. i'm a he not saying that coincidentally, but this is the republican party trying to set upup the parameters of what the oh obama foreign policy is going to be in the years to come. they're concerned that the obama administration is going to start to take a more stringent line with israel, and frankly to israel's benefit in my estimation. so i think this is as much about precluding where they see the obama administration going as it is about this nomination. >> john: and that he wants to change the pentagon on an constitutional level. joe, your thoughts? >> well, my thoughts, yes that's exactly right. he's going to change the pentagon as an institution because as a former senator he knows the
